If you were a visitor to this country driving on our motorways you could be excused for believing that the limit was 80 miles per hour and not, as I believe it is, 70 miles per hour. It seems that Transport Secretary, Philip Hammond supports the idea of lifting the speed limit as our limit is one of the slowest in Europe. However the anti car brigade are coming out with the road safety card claiming that it would make roads less safe. However Department for Transport figures already show that 52% of drivers already exceed the 70mph limit on the motorways.

Hammond also supported the idea that increased speed limits would shorten journey times and speed productivity. However, higher speeds will lead to increased fuel consumption so there may be an environmental cost to factor in.

I guess this could be balanced up with the lobby pushing for more 20mph speed limits to be introduced in more urban areas. I quite like 80mph limits but I feel 20mph limits may have their place. Which is best? There’s only one way to find out – apologies to Harry Hill! What are your views? By Graham Hill
